East Jackson Comprehensive High School is one of 80 schools in Georgia named an Advanced Placement (AP) Honor School, state superintendent of schools Kathy Cox announced.
“Georgia is making tremendous strides with Advanced Placement — not only in the number of students taking the courses, but in the number of students having success,” she said in a statement. “Much of that progress comes from the dedication to rigor and excellence at each of our AP Honor Schools.”
Advanced Placement (AP) classes and exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP classes offer rigorous college-level learning options to students in high school. Students who receive a 3, 4 or 5 on AP exams may receive college credit.
EJCHS was named an “AP Challenge School” for having fewer than 900 students and offering AP classes in all core areas — English, mathematics, social studies and science.
